The U.S. Embassy presents American jazz fusion band the Huntertones in concert

The U.S. Embassy to Barbados, the Eastern Caribbean, and the OECS is pleased to host the Huntertones, an American jazz ensemble in a four-country tour. They will perform a FREE public concert in Barbados on March 3.

The U.S. Embassy Bridgetown continues their support of the arts in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean through dynamic cultural initiatives and programming.

Huntertones, based in New York, has a high energy, horn-driven sound that fuses inspired improvisation and adventurous composition melding jazz, funk, rock, and soul. When performing “live,” the Huntertones shift from a dynamic six-piece ensemble to a trio, featuring saxophone, sousaphone, and beat boxing. The band was founded by saxophonist Dan White and includes John Lampley, a multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist; Chris Ott, a trombonist, beatboxer, composer, arranger, and educator. Josh Hill is the ensemble’s guitarist and John Hubbell is the drummer.

The U.S. Embassy is hosting this series of public concerts to underscore the excellence and diversity of American music, and to promote cultural exchange. This concert series will appeal to a wide range of music lovers, specifically jazz enthusiasts, soul and funk fans, young and upcoming musicians, music students, and the general public.
